"I'm not interested in making money, anymore!"

So how much would you be worth to say, 'I've got enough'?

Well, the magic number for David Geffen was 4 billion dollars.

And you ask, what does your resume have to look like to attain that much wealth?
60 years old, single, no children, college drop out

Congratulations, your mother would be proud!

Possessed By Wanderlust

Well, I was doing it last night, were you?
Watching Martin Scorsese's PBS Special The Blues:A Musical Journey There is a different director each night culminating with Clint Eastwood. Check here for your local channel's schedule. Two quotes, in particular, stood out to me during this special:
1) When the whole world is bored with automated mass-distributed video-music, our descendants
will despise us for having thrown away the best of our culture.
2)Robert Johnson ..a high haunting voice with a perfect balance on the razor's edge of joy and blues.
So I researched it a little more and came across this fascinating article about the author of the first quote.
NASA, Guggenheim, Ku Klux Klan, O Brother Where Art Thou....lots of interesting tidbits. Take some time and read it and watch the special.
